Nebraska Town Joins Fight for Immigration Laws
Arizona is now controversial because it’s taking actions against the illegal immigrants without the “Go” signal from the White House. But now, it is not the only place in United States that will be known about this matter.
Probably you have not heard about a small town in Nebraska called Fremont. They voted recently against the illegal immigrants who are getting jobs and properties in their town. According to the AP reports Fremont only have a population of 25,000. With the immigration law, it would require the officials of the town to do a check on the citizenship status of the person before they can rent any property in the town. The same goes for all the employers who are trying to hire foreigners. They must have a federal database where they could check for the status of these citizens.
Because of this vote, the state of Nebraska may now be another battleground fighting against the illegal immigrants and the laws that would embrace them as well. Now Arizona is no longer alone when it comes to letting their law enforcement officials stop those who are living in the country without complete papers.
With the, the American Civil Liberties Union already said that they would file a case against their branch in Nebraska. The group believes that the Fremont Law is not showing the real values of America which are equality and fairness.
There were some residents who gave their side about the issue. In an interview, Trevor McClurg told AP that he thinks it is not right for the illegal immigrants to be hired or to rent a house in their town since they [illegal immigrants] should not be in any part of United States in the first place.
However, if history will tell if this would push through, citizens like Trevor McClurg may have to wait for a couple more years. There were already trashed cases in the Federal Courts where landlords and business would get penalty whenever they hire illegal immigrants.
